Morning Sickness

Hey kiddo,

I think I'm about 7-8 weeks pregnant. We've been lucky so far. I'm unusually grumpy and annoyed but so far no morning sickness.

I just am not a big fan of the idea of pregnancy. So here we are. On the 7th, I woke up at four in the morning. I've been waking up early a lot lately. Maybe in the future I'll be a morning person, but historically I have not been. I'm not a fan of mornings. Anyway, I downlo…
